A “delighted” Slimming World consultant who runs a weight-loss group in Beckenham has met fitness instructor turned star comedian Paddy McGuinness at an awards ceremony.
Marie Dye, who runs a group at Beckenham Methodist Church, said she was delighted after meeting the Take Me Out presenter.
Bolton-born McGuinness, who shot to fame in Channel 4 comedy Phoenix Nights alongside school friend Peter Kay before becoming a popular stand-up comedian, said he thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
McGuinness said: “I have to admit the most I knew about Slimming World before the awards was a gag in Peter’s routine that refers to Slimming World as being a £1 cheaper than its competitors! Jokes aside, I was genuinely amazed to hear about what a difference Consultants like Marie make to people’s lives.”
